Il sentiero dei nidi di ragno review ð 103 Italo Calvino Æ 3 summary read Û eBook or Kindle ePUB Æ Italo Calvino On previously censored passages and his newly translated unabridged preface in which Calvino brilliantly critiues and places into historical context his own youthful workThe Path to the Spiders' Nests is animated by the formidable imagination that has made Italo Calvino one of the most respected writers of our time. Something irreparable has happened to Pin now as irreparable as when he redacted due to spoilers Never again will he be able to return to the detachment never will he be able to go into action with them now It is sad to be like him a child in a world of grown ups always treated as an amusement or a nuisance and never to be able to use those exciting and mysterious things weapons and women never to be able to take part in their games But one day Pin will be grown up too and be able to behave really badly to everyone revenge himself on those who have behaved badly to him how Pin would like to be grown up now or rather not grown up but as he is yet admired and feared a child and yet a leader of grown ups on some marvellous enterprise The Path to the Nest of Spiders was Italo Calvino s first novel and it shows Not in a lack of uality even here Calvino is one hell of a writer but in that the novel lacks the experimentation or the singularity of purpose as displayed in his later works As Calvino points out in his prologue resistance novels were all the rage at the time and so he found himself writing a resistance novel Up until that point his short stories had all featured himself as the protagonist and he originally started the novel in the same way He found that it wasn t working and it was only when he revised the novel with the child Pin as the focus did it really work he also admits that he started out writing something shorter that turned into a novelThe inclusion of Pin and the prominence of his aloof independence his eagerness to find a friend or just to fit in the alienation his youth brings and the guarded innocence with which he approaches his interactions with the world bring a distinctly poignant perspective to the novel Pin moves through the resistance groups but is never truly a part of them but the interactions occurring around him highlight the disconnect between the other resistance fighters and their longing for acceptance and inclusion that matches Pin s ownSo the writing is good the general perspective is good but there really isn t anything here that really points the way to the writer that Calvino would become So it s interesting when Calvino says in the prologue This was my first novel almost my first piece of writing What can I say about it today I will say this it would always be better not to have written one s first bookAs long as your first book remains unwritten you possess that freedom which you can use only once in a lifetime Your first book already defines you while you are really far from being defined And this definition is something you may then carry with you for the rest of your life trying to confirm it or extend or correct or deny it but you can never eliminate it Because of course it s true that one can never eliminate their first book but Calvino never really allowed any one book to define him or his writing and always seemed to bring that freedom with him into each new book he wrote This is an interesting beginning but it s only a beginning where Calvino went from here is where things really get interestingreally this like 35 stars and I really leaned towards flat 3 but eventually just rounded up because it s Calvino I really hate rating books sometimes

Il sentiero dei nidi di ragno review ð 103 Italo Calvino Æ 3 summary read Û eBook or Kindle ePUB Æ Italo Calvino Italo Calvino was only twenty three when he first published this bold and imaginative novel It tells the story of Pin a cobbler's apprentice in a town on the Ligurian coast during World War II He lives with his sister a prostitute and spends as much time as he can at a seedy bar where he amuses the adult patrons Af. What you read and what you experience in life are not two separate worlds but one single cosmos Here I go again Another review and my Dearest CalvinoIt s been a spectacular reading year for me I got to know some great people got some great book recommendations and of course read some great books written by great authors Of them I read the following writers for the first time No Kidding Vladimir Nabokov Haruki Murakami David Mitchell David Foster Wallace Virginia Woolf Rohinton Mistry Thomas Bernhard Nikolai Gogol Roberto Bolano to name a few But Italo Calvino is someone I m most glad to discover I have never really believed in the concept of my favorite personbookplacecoloretc is but I suspect Calvino is uickly turning into my favorite writer This is his 4th book I read in less than 6 months and I hope he has written enough to last me this lifetime So considering all the points I mentioned it was important that I dig into the novel that marked the beginning of his magnificent literary career The Path to the Spiders Nests a book title which according to Salman Rushdie was one of the best in the post war literature was officially the very first writing of Calvino Written in a few weeks time in 1946 at the age of 23 the novel was published in 1947 and was well received much to the surprise of Calvino himself A reception that made him critically analyse his novel and this time he rhetorically reacted How on earth could I have written such things It s not his best novel but it was definitely his first a product of neo realism of that time and Calvino s na ve youthful phase a novel which later became difficult for him to acknowlwdged as his own He nearly abandoned it until 1954 when he revised few of its exaggerated elements revolving around anti feminism Political extremism and sexual vulgarity but it was in 1964 much before writing his celebrated works for which he later became famous for that he accompanied this book with a 23 page preface with its share of Calvinian elements which remains his most substantial and revealing self commentary as well as an indispensable objective analysis of Italian neo realism The Path to the Spiders Nests is a story of an orphaned street urchin named Pin who lives with his prostitute sister in a town on the Ligurian coast Italy during World War II Pin is a troubled little kid who knows a lot about people and other things for his own good He likes to be around grown ups because they know and do things he wants to do and longs for their respect and at the same time wants to be the part of the group of kids his own age but can t really relate to them As the story moves to prove a certain point to amateur Partisans whom he regularly used to encounter in a tavern he gets into trouble due to stealing a pistol from a German who used to sleep with his sister But soon got captivated by the deadly weapon in his little hands and hid it in spiders nests a place only he knew whereabouts of Written as part of Italo s experience as a partisan in The Resistance the freedom that post war presented to the Italian literary world inspired Calvino too but he had his share of inhibitions I was a mass of complexes and inhibitions when confronted with all that I most dearly wanted to saythe world of literature did not open up for me like a straightforward and objective apprenticeship but was like a journey which I did not know how to start Full of these youthful ambitions and anxieties I lacked the spontaneous grace of youththe symbolic protagonist of my novel was therefore an image of regression a child As the story moves further Pin found himself caught by Germans and thrown into jail from where he escaped with the help of another Partisan and eventually landed up in one of the various detachments A detachment consisting of men from various backgrounds and fighting for something they only have a vague idea about This confusion is expressed from the vantage point of a child who himself is confused as to how to define the bravado or heroism and idealism in the face of war In his preface Calvino admitted that Pin was to some extent an auto biographical image of his own experience as a Partisan during Italian Resistance Movement I later realized The identification between myself and the protagonist had developed into something complex The relationship between the character of the boy Pin and the partisan war correspond symbolically with the relationship that I myself eventually had with that war If I talk about the story alone then it s a 3 star for me in spite of accumulating all my prejudices together for Calvino Notwithstanding my ignorance about the Italian History during WWII there were many things that intrigued me which depicted a general viewpoint about human nature and its various facets during war time A particular passage that caught my attention was Pin s na ve fixation with killing He too feels that sharp rasping urge to kill even to kill the militiaman hiding in the chicken coopthe urge is remote vague like the urge to love it has an exciting and unpleasant taste like cigarettes or winean urge which all men have he can t understand why and which if satisfied would probably be pleasurable in some secret mysterious way Pin is not lovable in any way He is filthy obscene and very stupid He uses derogatory language looks down upon good people and takes pleasure in pain of others but he s just a child a child born at a wrong place in the wrong time among wrong people But he is someone who could have given an honest account of how despicable people can get during wartime And Calvino cleared Well I m going to write you a story about partisans in which nobody is a hero nobody has any class consciousness I m going to portray the world of marginal people the lumpenproletariat So Pin was meant to be like that But despite all this I can t overlook Calvino s writing which was in its developing stage at that time It s a short book not at all difficult and can be finished in a matter of hours But it s not a forgettable work There are various interesting instances that shall stay with you after finishing it off This book is not a example of great writing but it s exciting And Calvino graciously admitted it also it is the book of a very young manAlmost every work of art has various regrets and choices made accompanying it A completed book will never compensate me for what I destroyed in writing itBut every artist also experiences a coming of age phase which confirms his talent not only to the world but to the artist himself too This is the first novel I wrote almost my very first piece of writing What can I say about it today I will say this It would be better never to have written your first novelMr Calvino I m than glad that you wrote your first second and various other novels thereafter and kindly excuse if I ve taken immense pleasure from your bitter experience related to this book To my fellow Goodreaders if not for anything else get this book for that gem of a preface It s a 10 star for me and my apologies for uoting various extracts from it I just felt they needed to be shared My rating is based on the overall experience this book provided me of reading something written by a young rebellious writerand also by a mature wise and extremely talented one
